“Nice place to stay near the beaches”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

The actual physical space is nothing to write home about, although the rooms are clean. What sets the place apart are location and service.
Bay Harbor Islands is so close to all the beaches and also to shopping and other activities for rainy days. Easy access to MIA and FLL.
Folks working at this place are very friendly and helpful. I was worried about valet parking but it was very convenient and affordable. I would come back here again.
Drawbacks: storage is a little skimpy in the rooms (just a few small drawers) and the breakfast, while adequate is limited and there is very little space to eat unless you bring it back to your room.
Bonus: free use of Bay Harbor Fitness (very small gym with limited facilities) or LA Fitness (completely equipped gym). Just show your roomkey and you're in! But bring your towel from the hotel.
All in all, a good experience and I would stay here again.

Room Tip: I asked for a quiet room and got the back hallway which was pretty quiet. Walls are pretty thin so...

I was actually quite surprised how much I enjoyed staying at the Daddy O Hotel. The hotel name threw me off a bit after a colleague recommended it to me while I was traveling down in that area for business but it is definitely a place I'd stay again. Staff was very friendly and the hotel room was very comfortable. The location is very quiet which is nice for once as I tend to stay in noisy city spots and absolutely needed some time to relax. Next time I'm in the area I'll be sure to stay yet again at the Daddy O.

Beautiful hotel, well appointed rooms, kind and knowledgeable staff. Location is covenient for shopping and dining. Short bus ride or cab ride to south beach. I would recommend this place for people wanting to stay away from the crowds of south beach. This area is very quiet compared to SB so we had a great nights sleep. Only thing I would say is a negative was that the rooms were not well maintained but we will still return!

We stayed there for 3 nights and could recommend this Hotel a lot. The furniture was in a good condition and just enough for me and my cousin. It was always clean and they changed the towels daily. The straff was very helpful and friendly. The Woman who was responsible for the breakfast was like a caring Mom. The breakfast was very good too. We had to take the Bus to get to Miami Beach, but that was not a Problem at all and better for us because we didn't want to stay where all the tourists an Party People were. There was a nice Beach and many stores and Restaurants nearby.

I'm not fond of the Miami area and had never been to Bay Harbour Islands. My boyfriend and I booked while a few minutes away from the resort and I spoke with Harold at the front desk who was more than amicable at check-in. He even did a call-around and rang our room to make sure we liked it (kudos)!

There was another pleasant gentleman doing their night audit that recommended us weirdos a great place for food at 2am.

If you're looking a nice economical stay I recommend here. The rooms are cozy, and the breakfast being included is a bonus. There was a $12 parking fee per vehicle but where I'm from that's nothing. As another reviewer mentioned there is an insulation issue (my boyfriend wasn't very pleased with the bathroom being 'very noisy' and upon our check-out housekeeping vacuuming the halls was enough to have me not need a wake-up call) also the steps leading to the rooms could use some TLC, but this can't be helped at times when it comes to budgeting. Five stars go to the accommodating staff and a no-hassle night!

This is a harder review because it's mixed, the price of our stay for two nights was good & we paid $12 per day parking which was really good for area. The Bal Harbour area is delightful & was handy to jump on public transport to get to South Beach. First impressions of hotel is Art Deco, reception was bit dark but quirky, we stayed in King size room which was large bright & area lovely colours, good shower but no space for toiletries. Bed was very comfortable & large tv in room, not a lot of clothes storage but few nights was fine. The way up to room is bit shabby walls need painted & carpet definitely replaced was bit like walking down corridor on a ship room doors but odd but then room as I said was bright. Think hotel has been refurbished not sure when but problem is keeping it maintained that's where they've let it go. Breakfast is such a tiny area & awkward to get in & out then find a seating area & they have coffee machine which grinds beans & takes forever not great when people queuing in a small area ~ don't see point. The girl on desk in morning was very helpful but just had weird feeling in public areas but again once in room seemed like different room. Another point was shower screen along bottom needs cleaned & resealed just wastes look of bathroom. Saying all this still good if it's 2/3 nights but wouldn't want to stay longer . Another plus when we checked out I told girl on desk hair dryer in room didn't work just cut off after few seconds so she apologised & took a days parking fee off.

Room Tip: No views really & only 2 storeys so we requested top floor
